Vol. I, ch. III, sec.iv, 6

 

The Sardian state of the Ecclesias, in which things spiritual were "ready to die," merged into that in which the "few names," representative of those who were not "dead," were the "little strength" -- the Philadelphian. The philosophical christianity and superstition of Satan’s synagogue everywhere prevalent. The "little strength" the salt that preserves the christian community from utter corruption (Apoc. iii. 7).
 
 

ACT V. SEAL-PERIOD FIFTH

Apoc. vi. 9,10,11.

 

A period of great resistance unto blood on the part of the arrowless Bowman engaged in the conquest of the paganism of the Fourth Beast.
 
 

A.D. 303

 

"And when He opened the Fifth Seal, I saw underneath the Altar the souls of them who had been slain on account of the word of the Deity, and on account of the testimony which they held. 10. And they cried with a loud voice, saying, ’Until then, O thou who art the Despot holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood upon them who dwell upon the earth? 11. And to them each were given white robes, and it was answered to them that they should repose yet a short time while both their fellow-servants and their brethren should be filled up, who are about to be killed even as they."
